US Classic car exports: Where on Earth do these classic cars go?
According to data provided by Piers, over 35,000 classic cars are exported each year from the United States. Roughly 10,000 of those pass through our export facilities each year alone. There's an entire industry built around sourcing classic cars from the US. Where do all of these cars end up?
Top countries importing classic cars from the USA:
- United Kingdom
- New Zealand
You would think that the US would see a shortage of classic cars. But according to Hagerty, there are over 5 million classic cars remaining in the US today. Around a third of all classic cars shipped overseas arrive in the hands of final buyers. These are overseas buyers who found their dream classic car online and had imported it directly. Most are located in mainland Europe, Australia, and New Zealand. However there are classic car buyers all across the globe. We've shipped classics to the Philippines, China, Japan, the UAE, Qatar, and other countries where you generally don't see American classics.
